Non destructive way to mount a 10-22 on a FF ?

Out of curiosity, I "held" my 10-22 against the mount of my 5D to see at what point it would stop vignetting. 16mm. I would imagine less so, if it was properly mounted. I would be curious to try it on a FF without destroying my mirror.

Is here a quick and reversible mod that could be done to the 10-22, so it does mount on a 5D and clear thr mirror ?

Can't you just "pop" the rear bung out?

I've seen it done to a kit lens, so I'm sure it has been done somewhere.

GREAT. I think I am going to try this.

EDIT: It just dawned on me.....duhhhh

The 10D is not a FF and does not have the larger mirror of a 5D.... not sure this will work, as described.

Yes, put your finger inside the rear plastic baffle and pull it out. It will snap back into place when you are done.

Actually, the 10D did have a full size mirror. The 20D was the first camera to have components downsized to fit the cropped sensor. The earlier cameras were full sized in every way except the sensor and shutter.

Ah, didn't know that. With the plastic thingy (sorry for getting technical) popped off, does it still need to be kept above a certain focal length. I assume I can go by the link posted earlier to the how-to article.

And, what damage to the mirror can be expected if it does interfere ?

Some people simply use the smallest extension tube to mount an ef-s lens on a FF camera. It only changes the focal distance a little and since no glass does not affect IQ. and requires no other modification or risk to either the lens or camera.

Here are two links that describe using the EF-S 10-22 on 1.3 crop cameras and also full frame cameras:

WOW! I just did it and WOW! Works Perfect on my 5D!! I havent used this lens in a long time but it is excellent! I have a 16-35 2.8L and a 15mm Canon 2.8 as well. I would typically have this in my bag if i was shooting with both my 40D and 5D but more than not I would reach for my 5D and 16-35. Now I am able to go CRAZY wide!! I measured to where the mirror swings up past the contacts and knew better than to try at 10mm but did anyways and got the 99 error. The mirror swung right back up i changed the focal length back to 12. 12mm is perfect, but yes a little vignetting.

Just tried the 5D II
Mirror rubs at 11mm, and vignetting looks Almost corrected at 14mm

Very easy mod

12mm on 5D

I just tried it. Put my finger in and pulled straight out. Popped out quite easily.

I'm going to wait till tommorow, when there is more light to take some shots. The few I just tried do show noticeable edge softness but I was shooting wide open. I didn't take it wider than 14mm because I wasn't sure of the mirror clearance. With the above shots, it appears I can take it down to 12mm safely. 14mm is WIDE on a 5D :-)

I use it on my 1Ds3 all the time.

Works great at 15mm, and about 12.5mm on 1.3 crop.

Here is my mod. I added a baffle from a 75-300 to give it a closed, finished look
